Groups

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Love the addon just from the video.
I am wondering about groups. Can I assign multiple groups to one location? Then is there a way for the user to filter the map via the groups? Say for example I want to find a location that offers a certain service, I could select that service/group? But one location may offer several different services.
Also, is the map responsive?

Thanks for your help, I have been waiting for this addon!

Hi Andrew,

- You can assign multiple groups to one location, yes.
- However, at the moment you can only filter a map by one group. The main purpose of the groups is to just to be able to create separate maps, with different sets of locations.
- There's nothing in place to allow for further filtering by the user. Although I have been asked about such a feature before, it's actually very complex to add, both in terms of the actual Google Map side of things as well as how it would look (everyone would have a different view as to how the filter would look).
- One low tech solution to filtering would be to simply have multiple maps/pages, and add a basic navigation between them.
- The map is responsive in that it will aim to fill 100% of the container it is in. (the height is fixed like the built in google map block). So you can use it in a responsive theme without any issues.

I appreciate your questions here. I will consider the filtering aspect further as it's not the first time I've been asked about it, but as I've said it's actually pretty complicated to add!

Perfect. Thank you for your quick response. I have a website I've wanted to start for a year but didn't have a proper map addon for 5.7 to do what I needed. This is great as it gives all the functions of a normal google map with the grouping option. That is doable to have links to different map pages. Thanks again.

After watching more of the tutorial on your maps addon - for user filtering, would it be possible to do the group filtering simply by having it reload the page/block when a new group is selected? That way there wouldn't be so much info to load also it would just be a call for new information.

Hi Andrew,

I think I understand what you mean, instead of doing it via javascript, doing it by some sort of filtering on page load. This is still very close to what I suggested where there are multiple pages with already filtered maps, with just some basic links between them.

So I think it would either be this manual linking approach, or a full javascript approach.
I will consider it next time I work on the block, but I don't think that will be for quite a while.
